Paraganglioma is a rare tumor of the cerebellopontine angle. We report a case of a 55‑year‑old female presented with otalgia and decreased hearing in the left ear, hoarseness of voice, difficulty in swallowing, nasal regurgitation, and tinnitus. The tumor was excised by left retromastoid and posterior fossa craniectomy approach. Intra‑operative crush smear and histopathological examination revealed a paraganglioma. Post‑surgery the patient was treated with fractionated radiotherapy.
